You see the beauty in everything around you. Not just because you’re cultured, but because you take the time to look. You’re a slow walker, a slow talker, and you probably taste test every flavor of ice cream before you buy anything (much to the chagrin of the 28 people queueing behind you), but you’re not going to miss a thing.

The Paper Play is perfect for you. With its origins in experimentation with torn paper, the Paper Play print has a quiet optimism and a tangible, organic feel. It’s soft and pretty but with a strong, graphic appeal.

Sophia Nuske Ceramics Make You question everyday objects

Curator: DANIEL - EMMA

Sophia Nuske is a ceramic artist based in Adelaide, Australia. Through handmade replicas, Nuske invites the viewer to refocus their attention on common, overlooked objects. By playing with the inherent language of these things, the chains of associated ideas are stretched, creating humorous juxtapositions guided by wordplay. 


Her subtly altered objects are then resituated in the gallery, installed amongst items of the everyday to mimic their original context. This creates a game with the viewer in which one tries to determine what is real or a copy, reinforcing the playful quality underpinning Nuske's practice. Through installations, Nuske invites viewers to renegotiate their surroundings and how they engage with everyday objects.

Completing Honors in 2013 at the University of South Australia gave Nuske the opportunity to develop her ceramic work in a sculpture/installation context. In 2014, she was awarded the Adelaide City Council Acquisitive Prize and went to The Pottery Workshop Jingdezhen in China as part of the Helpmann Academy residency program. This year, Nuske will be working from a studio within The Jam Factory, and later undertaking a mentorship in South Korea.

WITU tote—the only bag you'll ever need

Elise Wilken and Natalie Turnbull are the girls behind team Witu. The pair met while working on the door of a Melbourne punk club, originally bonding over being the least punk girls ever and their mutual green-smoothie appreciation. A friendship was born.


They started Witu modestly with the mission to create the perfect everyday tote—a neoprene bag that was nonchalant, robust, and had the optimum arm strap length. The bag was a hit. This one signature tote eventually evolved to seasonal neoprene collections encompassing bags, clutches, and tech accessories, designed by Nat and Elise.


Not to be confused with gangster slang 'wit u', Witu is actually a hybrid of their surnames. The sentiment, however, rings true. Once you add a bit of Witu to your life, it's designed to stay with you forever. It's super monogamous like that.
